Why K-5 not listed on Firmware Updates

Anyone know why the K-5 is not even listed as an option in the Pentax Firmware Download screen - only K-5 II and K-5 IIs are listed? Anyone know why?

It is listed. The latest firmware version is 1.14, released on 1/30:

Why K-5 not listed on Firmware Updates

OK - Thanks a lot for your help. I can see it now.
Not sure what site I was looking at which did not show the K-5 separately.

For A Week At Least K-5 Firmware Updates Not Mentioned At Pentax!

I have been watching this, too!

Very odd that they don't list it right there, but just doing a search for K-5 firmware in any search engine brings it right up. I did that the other day to find it for mine. Shouldn't have to do that, but still the best way to avoid hunting through the site.

Forget about Pentax USA. Pentax USA's web page design makes it harder to keep track of firmware updates than Pentax JP's much simpler page here:
